Still problems with Nelfinavir
Apr 6, 1998

Any problem noted with used of daily loperamide (imodium) to prevent the diarrhea from Nelfinavir? Any information about whether it can be effective if used as a preventative?

Response from Dr. Currier

Loperamide can help to reduce or eliminate the diarrhea associated with nelfinavir. It can be taken with the dose of nelfinavir and help prevent the diarrhea. It is worth a try.


Removal of
